  6. This uprising in Egypt is magnificent! The people are taking their lives and communities back, ousting the dictator.

    I’m fortunate to get Canadian TV news, and their coverage is so inspiring,

    The sincerity of typical Egyptians fed up with the brutality of jailings and election fraud and brutal police is glorious, the people have h-a-d it. It is momentous!

    It’s not about religion or manipulation, it’s a righteous demand for freedom and an end to the brutality of Mubarek that lasted for decades. With US money to help.

    The US face is, too often, the face of tyrants like Mubarek. He is an ally of Empire, not the face of ordinary Americans. What will we demand of our US government now?

    Commendations to Hillary today for at least saying some right things…

    Good for the people everywhere that the Egyptians are demanding freedom and dignity!

    My favorite scenes are protesters speaking calmly and reasonably to police. If the military and police stop…like in Tunisia….the people win,

    it’s where the police and military eventually decide to be that can be the tipping point. And folks are talking to the cops on the street and some cops are listening!! 🙂

    It’s US-made tear gas and weapons-the profits flowing to the permanent war machine of US Empire- firing on these people, will our media talk about that?

    Empire sells these weapons to them and gives Mubarek 1.5B/yr. THIS needs to stop, we need to take our lesson from these Egyptians heroes and demand our government change.

    In the era of the internet and social networks, the community has risen!

    Egypt also protects Israel’s actions in Gaza, let’s applaud when that falls apart too…pehaps Egypt will bring some compassion now to Gaza. When Mubarek goes, the seige of Gaza may also end.

    We should all send our gratitude to the Egyptian people, who are teaching us once again what “the noise of democracy” really is!
